Tasty Tuesday – Berry Fruit Crisp!

So we all know I am a chocolate fiend. BUT at least once or twice a summer I absolutely MUST make a fruit crisp. And to be honest – – I love the ease (and cost!) of frozen berries! I have a recipe I’ve made before (GirlTalk Crisp!) but I wanted to try a new one this year.

I found this on pinterest and it was YUMMY YUMMY! Make it before your summer is over!

Berry Fruit Crisp

from startcooking.com by Heidi Adkisson

  • 2 12-ounce bags frozen fruit (mixed berries, peaches – anything!)
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 3 T. flour
  • 1 T. lemon juice
  • 1/2 c. old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 2/3 c. firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. ground ginger
  • 1/4 t. ground nutmeg
  • 7-8 T. butter (the recipe called for 7. I accidentally put 8 in and I thought it was PERFECT!)
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Measure out 6 cups of frozen berries ( 2 12 ounce bags) and transfer to a large bowl. Add sugar, flour, and lemon juice. Stir to combine and let the mixture rest while you prepare the topping.
  3. Get a medium sized bowl. Pour in oats, 3/4 c. flour, brown sugar, salt and spices and mix.
  4. Cut the stick of butter lengthwise (like folding a piece of paper hot dog style!). Turn it and cut the butter crosswise into little cubes of butter. (Or just cut the butter in any size chunks you want!)
  5. Transfer butter to the bowl with dry ingredients. Use your fingers to work the butter into the mixture. You want the butter to stay cool, so work quickly and don’t over mix. You won’t the mixture to be similar to wet sand, forming moist clumps when it’s ready.
  6. Transfer berries to a 9 inch pan or other similar dish. Sprinkle the topping over top. If it seems full, place a cookie sheet underneath to protect your oven if it bubbles over.
  7. Bake for about 1 hour. Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature… best with vanilla ice cream!
